How old were you when you started to get a crush on your cousin? This actually could have a lot to do with developing your crush. To be honest, if you are just developing feelings for the opposite (or same sex), they can develop about someone that you are close to. It"s normal, but that doesn"t mean that you need to act on it.

2 Understand It is Normal

Understanding that these feelings might not be chathamtownfc.net and might not even be a true, real crush is very, very important. I know it might feel like you are in chathamtownfc.net with your cousin and that they are your dream boyfriend or girlfriend, but it might all boil down to how old you are and if you are going through hormone changes.

3 Don"t Act on It

When you have a crush on your cousin, you don"t want to act on these feelings. This is your family and acting on these feelings could cause a lot of confusion and could cause a lot of controversy. While I know it might be a little hard in the beginning, you"ve got to resist acting on your feelings.

4 Seek Alternative People to Crush on

I know it might be hard to think about, but finding someone else can actually help you to move on and won"t cause you to have any emotions toward your cousin. You might have to grieve for your crush and even give yourself time to get over it, but the sooner you find someone to crush on that isn"t related to you, the better.

5 Allow Yourself Time to Get over the Crush

Remember how I said that you"ll need time to get over the crush that you have? Well, give yourself that time to get over your crush. It"s okay to take it; in fact, take as much time as you want. You shouldn"t ever be on any sort of time line.

PurplePotato my cousin and I are a year apart, and we have known each other forever. We used to be so close as little kids, but we used to live across the country from eachother; so we have drifted a bit. But recently, she moved in with me and my family because... She wanted to. I don"t know why, but we act a lot like a couple. I have recently started to think I have feelings for her, I"m hoping not. Any advice?

Hana Soo uh... I’m turning 13 in a week and it’s like I’ve kinda liked one of my cousins for a bit now.. but like, he’s 15 years older then me AND he’s married.. I’ve confessed to him once when he took me out shopping and he replied with “I like you too” but he meant it as family and when I said “that’s not what I meant” I felt REALLY awkward although he kinda just brushed it off and pretended I never said that. He treats me like a little kid and all that because everytime I’m near him I can’t help but act childish... I always ask him to “play” with me and sometimes I try to sit on his lap nd stuff..
